Digital Revolution

Anybody who uses the internet knows that what happened on January 18th changed history.

Does this mean that the future of politics will be affected by the tides of the digital-social sea? Part of me hopes so, part of me wonders if this is necessarily a good thing. Don’t get me wrong, I think what happened to SOPA and PIPA was awesome. I was one of the millions of voices crying out (and fortunately not immediately silenced;). Was it that the cause itself was so compelling or that the voices that pushed the cause (ie. the internet giants) that made people respond? 

Probably some combination of both. I hope it’s an even split with a slight leaning towards the cause itself. Then again, I’m feeling optimistic today. After all we won!
